Transporting bulky or heavy items to Madeira has become a much more difficult task since the Armas ferry from Portimao stopped docking at Funchal regularly in early 2012. After that everything had to “containerised”, or more expensively, air-freighted.
If you plan to have the exclusive use of a 20ft or 40ft container shipped directly to Madeira this can be arranged from any location. However, if you want to send a “part-load” from Europe we can organise shipment through specialist companies who freight by road to mainland Portugal and then across to Madeira Island (typically every 14-21 days). They will collect, package, and document the part-load and deliver it to an address you specify in Madeira. They also provide storage if required.
Increased storage facilities planned
We are currently seeking to expand our storage facilities in Funchal to accommodate anything from a frequent visitor wanting to keep a set of golf clubs to somebody moving their house contents to or from Madeira
